About the Author

Hello! My name is Angie Cherney.

I am first and foremost a believer in Jesus Christ and my life is no longer my own. "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." (Galatians 2:20)   I pray that I would glorify God through my words and deeds.

I'm also an author, a wife, and homeschooling mom of seven. (Yes, seven! Yes, they're all ours. Yes, we know what causes it.) Our oldest child, Matt, was made perfect in Heaven at the age of 16 on July 29, 2011. Our son's death is what prompted me to make my dreams of becoming an author a reality. I've written three children's picture books and am working on a novel. I do all of my writing from the beautiful "Land of 10,000 Lakes" and can be found writing on the sly. (In other words, in secret...which means ALONE and AFTER the children are in bed.)

I also blog about our grief journey at: AWindowIntoGrief.blogspot.com

  1. Stopping by from The Loft, and followed the link from that page to this one. Looks like you've just passed the 3 year mark without your son - as you know, there are no words that I can say that will "help", but please know I am unbelievably sorry you had to go through that. I'm praying that God continues to ease the hurt in your family's hearts - as only He can. I'm so glad you're living out your dreams! Thank you for sharing with us at The Loft - hope to see you again next week!!

    1. Rebekah,
      Thank you so much. Such kind words. I appreciate the acknowledgement. Looking forward to participating in the great community of bloggers at The Loft!

  2. You are my neighbor!!! I grew up in the Twin Cities and am over the river now in St. Croix Falls.

    So sorry for the loss of your son. <3

    My family is no stranger to that kind of loss. My 20y/o niece in 2003, my 27y/o brother in 2006, and my 79y/o dad in a car accident in June. God's grace is so precious and I'm thankful you have picked up "the pen" and are joining us at #TheLoft!

    Congratulations on your books! I want to know more! {And 7!!! That is awesome!!!}

  3. Kathy,
    That's great! I can't believe how many awesome connections I've discovered through this fabulous writing world. Thank you for your kind words. I, too, am sorry you've had to experience loss as well. But our hope is in the world to come, a perfect world without tears, grief, or sin. All because of HIM who saved us. Blessings, Angie
